This week, the first ever AMPAP ATS Gateway course to take place in beautiful Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is being hosted by the Kilimanjaro Airports Development Company. Accompanied here by Mr. Mukoma, Managing Director of Kilimanjaro International Airport and our AMPAP instructors, a new cohort of IAP hopefuls begin their AMPAP journey!
Vince Dancho, Vice President of Operations of Winnipeg Airports Authority (WAA) and his team graciously hosted a small but well engaged group from Canada, Nigeria and Trinidad & Tobago. The 106th AMPAP Gateway course was led by Mr. Paul Behnke and he was joined by Dr. Ruwantissa Abeyratne and Mr. Peter Adams.
AMPAP has been developing airport leaders in all functional areas of the airport business, sharing best managerial practices and promoting an awareness of ICAO standards and recommended practices to augment professional standards in our industry.
Mindful and gratified for a small, yet positive, environmental impact, AMPAP has hosted and delivered 3 of its 4 mandatory courses in an online format via its course portal to over 5,000 registrants to date, effectively saving the use of 1.33 million pages or roughly 89 trees and 1.96 million litres of water.
Last June, AMPAP also broke ground to deliver its first paperless gateway mandatory course 12 years to the day from when and where AMPAP first launched it at the ICAO Headquarters in Montreal, Canada. This move is estimated to save an additional 2.1 trees and approximately 47 thousand litres of water annually.
Although small, by world standards, we feel our contribution from the Programme is still noteworthy!
The AMPAP team was greeted by Hareendranathan, Director of the Indian Aviation Academy who hosted the course and Mr. I.N. Murthy who came to address the class on some of the challenges for Airports Authority of India. Participants from Singapore, South Africa, Nigeria, Mozambique and India have been sharing perspective and practices with the instructors, Jean-Marc Trottier, Peter Adams, and Hayden Newton.
Under the kind auspices of ACI LAC, Director General, Javier Martinez was on site for the delivery of the AMPAP gateway course, in Miami from July 15 to 19. Assistant Director of Operations of MIA, Mr. Dan Agostino also visited the group to address the small yet excellent group of participants who came primarily from the LAC region (Ecuador, Mexico, Costa Rica, Columbia and Peru). A 2012 AMPAP graduate himself, Mr. Martinez also joined the AMPAP team for the panel session: Jean-Marc Trottier (course leader), Peter Adams and Louis Haeck.
